I dearly loved my Aunt Nancy. My fondest memories of her were when she would pick me up in the mornings for school. We listened to WAAX radio in her car, and we always listened to the birthday announcements before I would get out of the car. One year, for my birthday, she called the radio station and had them announce my name. I was so excited to hear it. Aunt Nancy also took me on my first fishing trip. I still have the picture she snapped of me holding my first fish. She was one of seven of the best Aunts one could ever ask for. I miss you and love you, Aunt Nancy.

Mama Henley will be very missed. My younger years are treasured memories spending so many happy times around her and while Lisa and I were like “ sisters”. My love and prayers go out to all of her family. Until we meet again always rest in peace. Love, Shelley
